Mark Smith

General Manager & Winemaker

“I consider myself very fortunate to work in an inspirational setting like Napa Valley. The varied soils, topography and moderate climate are ideal for the production of world-class wine grapes, so our challenge is to live up to these standards and create outstanding wines. I want to help manage the winemaking process in an honest, non-manipulative manner. My goal is to make elegant, well balanced, food friendly wines that display finesse and character and are true to their varietal and place.”
